Earlier today, Rabbi Shlomo Noginski was attacked on the street outside the Shaloh House. He is, thank G-d, in stable condition and in good spirits and being treated in the hospital for stab wounds to his arm. Police have arrested the suspected attacker and the incident is still being investigated by the police.

As soon as our staff became aware of what happened outside, our facility went into lockdown to ensure the safety of all the children and staff in our program. At no point during the incident were any of the children in danger.

The safety of our children and staff is of the utmost importance to us and we will be increasing security at the Shaloh House throughout the remainder of the summer.

We are all very shaken by what happened and ask for you to please keep Rabbi Noginski in your prayers for a refuah sheleima, speedy and complete recovery (Shlomo ben Zlata Miriam). We are heartened by the outpouring of concern and compassion we have received in just the last hours since the incident.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Rabbi Dan Rodkin
